The entire course focuses on the following elements of the NCP life:
- main communication channels and the strategy to adopt to inform clients about the funding opportunities

- to provide essential information for events organization (info days, workshop, webinar, M&E...)
- to advise on collaboration with stakeholders of the NCP systems: EEN networks, European Commission, NCP Networks, relevant EU platforms for cooperation.
This course has the aim of informing EU Partner
Countries NCPs about their role within the Horizon Europe programme and the
expected activities that will be required of them. The course will provide and
explain the minimum standards and guiding principles for setting up systems of
National Contact Points, and it will outline the main support services that EU
Partner Countries NCPs should guarantee to their clients to ensure that Horizon
Europe becomes accessible to all potential users. The course also covers
fundamental elements of the NCP life, such as main communication channels, the
means to provide essential information for events organization and cooperation
with stakeholders of the NCP systems.
The course aims to briefly present the digital tools that National Contact Points can use in the framework of their duties. The course presents the use of the Funding and Tenders portal in terms of searching for new funding opportunities, identifying partners, finding sources of support and submitting proposals. The Horizon Dashboard and the Funding and Tenders portal are also demonstrated as tools through which National Contact Points can find information on their country's participation in previous FPs.
